Track funding progress
Indie Birds is a rewards-based funding platform. Rewards are something you can offer any time, even after your project is completed. Check in often to answer questions about your project, create rewards, and brainstorm incentives to offer your supporters.
With our Basic and Premium options, Indie Birds offers merchandising and lets you withdrawal funds any time so you can invest in your project every step of the way.
With Indie Birds, you keep what you raise, even if you don’t reach your goal. If you’ve managed to gather a nest egg and want to keep going, we also offer renewal options, merchandising, 24/7 support, and marketing.
Once you’ve reached your goal, Indie Birds gives you access to writers, editors, event ticketing, distributors, copyright services, and everything else you’ll need to successfully distribute your project.
Make sure to keep your supporters informed so they can enjoy your product and spread the word!
6. Keep backers in the loop
Keep backers in the loop
Your backers share your vision and passion. Even though they are not investors in the traditional sense, backers are a part of the journey and will want to participate as much as possible.
The key to keeping backers happy is communication. Even when we thought we were communicating consistently, it still wasn’t enough. While it’s easy to get bogged down in development or conserve your message for proprietary reasons, make every effort to provide detailed updates on a frequent basis. This will assure your backers that things are rolling and that it’s all part of the crowdfunding process.
